Books Info:

African Air free pdf Flying hundreds, sometime thousands, of feet above ground strapped into a motorized paraglider that is little more than a parachute with a small motor, National Geographic photographer George Steinmetz has spent more than twenty years photographing some of the most remote and spectacular environments around the world. In "African Air", Steinmetz captures stunning panoramas in more than fourteen countries in Africa, giving readers captivating and intimate views of areas that have rarely, if ever before, been photographed. From densely packed urban centres to small, remote villages, from migrating herds of wildebeests and elephants to infinite miles of desert, "African Air" is a compelling testament and celebration of the majesty and splendour of Africa's most breathtaking landscapes. With extraordinary vision and a unique perspective, Steinmetz portrays sky, land and water in ways that have never been expressed before.
